The coming era of 5G mobile communications has users excited about the possibilities and broadband systems designers and manufacturers a bit nervous about the realities. Deployment will come in phases – the first this year, with scaled rollout of broader deployment expected to begin in 2020. While handheld devices may have the required chipsets, infrastructures must be able to manage the huge amounts of data and speeds required to satisfy 5G demands. The move from 4G to 5G is more than a step change; it’s a leap. Current projections are that 5G will be able to handle 1,000 times more traffic and will provide data download speeds at 10x the rate of 4G LTE. To put that in context, 4G+ download speeds, on average, are about 60Mbit/second. 5G is projected to deliver anywhere between 1,000 – 10,000 Mbit/second (1 -10 Gbit/sec). You’ll be able to download an HD movie onto your phone in less than a second.
